The Best Shows That Critics Haven’t Gotten Around to Watching — IndieWire Survey

18 April 2017 9:32 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Every week, IndieWire asks a select handful of TV critics two questions and publishes the results on Tuesday. (The answer to the second, “What is the best show currently on TV?” can be found at the end of this post.)

This week’s question: What’s a show you’ve been meaning to watch but haven’t gotten around to yet? Why?

April Neale (@aprilmac), Monsters & Critics

I hang my head in shame, I never got to “The Wire.” Whenever people go on about it, I engage, smile and nod my head like, “Yeah, Stringer Bell, man.” It also starred Dominic West who comes from that strain of dark-haired British men like Ian McShane who are catnip to me. I’ve seen extended clips and snips but never had the perfect storm of time to go back and review this landmark series. It’s up there with putting a scrapbook together in my old age, »

Gina Rodriguez Lines Up “Carmen Sandiego” & Two Potential Women-Directed Films

17 April 2017 2:01 PM, PDT | Women and Hollywood | See recent Women and Hollywood news »

Gina Rodriguez in “Jane the Virgin

Where in the world is Gina Rodriguez? Everywhere. Per The Tracking Board, the “Jane the Virgin” star will voice the titular character in Netflix’s animated series “Carmen Sandiego.” She is also in talks to lead two movies: Sony’s Catherine Hardwicke-directed “Miss Bala” and 20th Century Fox’s Ryan Case-helmed “Fire Me.”

“Carmen Sandiego” is a new iteration of the beloved ’90s video game “Where in the World Is Carmen Sandiego?” and the subsequent TV series starring Lynne Thigpen (“L.A. Law,” “Homicide”). The Tracking Board writes that Netflix has given a 20-episode order to the series about the globetrotting thief, which “aims to be as educational as it is entertaining.”

As for the film negotiations, Rodriguez might have to choose between “Miss Bala” and “Fire Me,” as the projects are currently scheduled to film around the same time. “Sony sees ‘Miss Bala’ as a potential franchise starter, which could give it an edge,” the source details.

As previously reported, Hardwicke’s “Miss Bala” is a remake of Gerardo Naranjo’s 2011 drama about a kidnapped beauty pageant contestant. Rodriguez would play Gloria Meyer, “who finds herself a pawn, after her friend Suzu goes missing in Tijuana, in a dangerous game being played by the CIA, the DEA and a charismatic young crime boss.”

Fire Me” is a “9 to 5”-esque comedy based on a Libby Malin novel. Case (“Modern Family,” “Brooklyn Nine-Nine”) will direct and Red Hour Films is producing. According to the book’s synopsis, “Fire Me” revolves around Anne Wyatt. “[She] goes to work one day determined to resign. But that’s the day her boss announces someone’s getting laid off (and with a generous severance package). Now Anne has one day to ruin her career.”

“Carmen Sandiego” and the two potential movies are just the tip of the iceberg for Rodriguez. The Golden Globe winner has a bunch of other projects in the works, such as executive producing a bullying drama for Hulu. Based on Meg Medina’s Ya book “Yaqui Delgado Wants to Kick Your Ass,” the series “tells the story of a diverse, vibrant Brooklyn community confronting bullying, racial tensions, and questions of identity.”

Also on Rodriguez’s docket are a multi-year deal between CBS and her I Can and I Will Productions banner, a book about her father’s advice, and a potential adaptation of the German series “Dr. Illegal.” Rodriguez’s upcoming films include romantic comedy “Sharon 1.2.3.,” sci-fi thriller “Annihilation,” and animated movies “Ferdinand,” and “The Star.”

Gina Rodriguez Lines Up “Carmen Sandiego” & Two Potential Women-Directed Films was originally published in Women and Hollywood on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story. »

The Best TV Shows Adapted From Books — IndieWire Critics Survey

Daniel Fienberg (@TheFienPrint), The Hollywood Reporter

Ok, I listed like 50 answers for last week’s Guest Stars question and I’m determined not to cheat this week! Kinda. The answer is “Friday Night Lights,” but I acknowledge that there are caveats, because the NBC TV series was based on the feature film, which was based on Buzz Bissinger’s book, so is the show based on a book or based on a movie? Well, because Peter Berg adapted both, I’m gonna say they’re both based on the book, because really the only continuity »

This week’s question: Who has been the best guest star on a scripted show?

Tim Surette (@timsurette), TV.com

Wayne Brady showing up in body armor and riding a horse on Syfy’s post-apocalyptic disaster disaster “Aftermath” needs to be mentioned somewhere in this critics’ roundup, so here it is. But I’ll point out two from intentional comedies that come to mind. Timothy Olyphant’s short run on “The Grinder” as himself was fantastic and if I didn’t mention this my coworker Kaitlin would kill me. But my pick goes to David Duchovny, also as himself, on “The Larry Sanders Show.” We’d largely known Duchovny for »

A Medium With a Message: Inside TV’s Long History of Tackling Social Issues

14 March 2017 10:30 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Abortion. Alcoholism. Pedophilia. Slumlords. Assisted suicide. Civil rights. Criminal justice reform.

These are all timely topics for television drama in 2017. But they were also tackled, with gritty realism, more than a half century ago on two landmark CBS series: “The Defenders” (1961-65), starring E.G. Marshall and Robert Reed as crusading father-and-son defense attorneys, and “East Side/West Side” (1963-64), featuring George C. Scott as a New York City social worker, with Cicely Tyson as his able secretary. Tyson’s series regular role, coupled with the fact that she appeared with her natural hair, was groundbreaking in a fraught period of civil rights struggles.

The New Frontier era ushered in by President John F. Kennedy’s election marked a moment when the networks made room for “prestige” narrative series that dealt with weighty social issues. The appetite for serious fare was stoked by the May 1961 declaration by Kennedy’s FCC chairman, Newton »

First Photos: James Franco plays twins in HBO’s next big series ‘The Deuce’

3 March 2017 1:32 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

The Deuce photos land online ahead of the new show’s debut this summer.

Some early images from HBO‘s new TV drama The Deuce, which comes to the screen courtesy of The Wire creator David Simon, have just dropped online. The Deuce photos come courtesy of Entertainment Weekly who give us our first look at James Franco playing the Martino twins – one a struggling bartender and the other his slacker brother – in the cable series, which arrives later this year.

Franco plays the duo, two key players in Times Square who became involved with the mob by providing fronts for the sex industry’s early days. Maggie Gyllenhaal plays a sex worker in the show, an entrepreneurial prostitute named Candy. She can be seen in the second image.

Simon spoke with EW and offered the series as a critique of market capitalism:

The Best Murder Mystery Series Ever — IndieWire Critics Survey

Erik Adams (@ErikMAdams), A.V. Club

It has to be “Twin Peaks,” right? I’m one of those annoying people who insists the show is so much more than “Who killed Laura Palmer?”, but that is our entry point to David Lynch and Mark Frost’s weird little world, and the question that briefly made “Twin Peaks” a pop-culture phenomenon.

A Sundance Sale, Revisited: Miguel Arteta Looks Back on the 20th Anniversary of ‘Star Maps’

23 January 2017 8:26 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Sundance deals accrue such legend that it’s easy to forget the ones that materialize out of nowhere. Such was the case 20 years ago to this day, when Miguel Arteta’s first feature “Star Maps” premiered at the festival and landed a $2.5 million deal with Fox Searchlight.

The movie, which tells the story of a Latin American teen (Douglas Spain) who works as a bisexual hustler while harboring dreams of movie stardom, became an overnight sensation at Sundance — and also turned Arteta into a permanent member of the festival family. Since then he’s returned with “Chuck & Buck” (2000) and with “The Good Girl” (2002); tonight he screens his latest effort, “Beatriz at Dinner” out of competition.

The “Star Maps” deal also marked a historic moment for this site. At roughly a year old, IndieWire was establishing itself as a nimble digital upstart that had accrued popularity at Sundance, where it published a daily print edition. »
